Posted:juggle weavesmiley Manchester Spinners Meet up and stuff weavesmiley juggle



Hi all If you are looking for people to spin poi with in the North west this is the place to be.



For any one new to this sight DONT READ THE WHOLE THREAD it has been going a long time and contains lots of old information and chat about previous meet ups and organisation stuff just go to the last few posts to find out the most up-to-date information on current events.



First a bit of info the Manchester spinners lot is no professional spinning troop or organised events it is just a group of people who get together to enjoy themselves. The first meet up was organised way beck in September 04 http://delizium.fotopic.net/c291964.html
br>
The crowd has changed a bit from back then but we have kept a few old timers we welcome all along to come and join us for a spin whether you be experienced or a complete beginner we are willing to teach and learn from you.



Their is no set time for the meet ups they are usually organised around when people can make it and how long they can stay.



I will try to update this first post as often as I can with the most up-to-date info on meet ups and club nights that allow spinning but if I'm being a bit lax just find the last few posts foe up-to-date info (like I said before werent you paying attention)



To date the standard meets have gone as meet up in Piccadilly gardens at 4pm (nice central point where every one can get to) Then move on down to the Gas Works/CastleField or Plat fields Park depending on the wether till everyone gets to cold/tired/burned then on to the pub

( anybody who doesnt know where this is it can be arranged for someone to come meet you at the train station or wherever you are coming from .) smile

{ ubblove We are a nice bunch like that ubblove}



Accommodation for a night can usually be arranged but you need to sort this well in advance no just turning up expecting somewhere to sleep eek





(more to be added and all to be spell checked soon)



pm me any info you would like to add



before i met those lot i thought they'd be a bunch of dreadlocked hippies that smoked, set things on fire ,and drank a lot of tea but then when i met them....oh wait (PyroWill)

Don't think I'll make Clapham tho frown , too close to Glastonbury (in days not miles) biggrin

We'll have to have a mega-Manc-meet in Sept when you're back in 'ull weavesmiley

Written by: Havokist

yeah, feel free to come down to any meets. we've just had a big ish meet, so there will probably be within roughly a month.

tobi, you were saying at the last meet that we should start having more regular meets? as in a certain weekend each month? would the third weekend in each month do? and possibly either a friday or saturday? cause some people have things like work on the sunday. tell me what you think ubbrollsmile



3rd week in June is Glastonbury, 3rd wk in July is Falmouth.....

Friday's not much good for me cos i work til 5 and I ain't turning up in me suit for you lot to laugh at!! But hey, I got so much on this summer I don't know when I'm free anyway ubbloco

Posted:you could film a series of video's with tobi, with you being in your suit and tobi being in that dressl ike thing he had at the last meet tongue

Pyrochef, some people do randomly turn up on sundays but it tends to be quite random, so if you let some of us know which sunday would be easier

seeing as the third weekend in each month is being taken up by things like flamouth and glastonbury, what about the first or second week in each month?

Will can only do Fri or Sun, I prefer Sat or sun and pyrochef likes sun, other people work on Sun

So.... just do as we have been doing and have it on a different day each time, depending on who's doing what that weekend.

Posted:Hey guys, i def dont think its a reality be coming to Manc anytime before September unless i pop up over the summer which i prob will do thanks to the joys of the megabus! i think that way it even works out cheaper than coming from hull!

But anyway cos I love you all, your all invited to come to Clapham, London for my birhtday Poi in the Park, im sure most of you cant come that long distance anyway but anyway the offer is there

Posted:i know, but if mike buys a mini-us it'd save a lot of hassle tongue

but seriously, (did i just say that?) it'd have to be someone with a drivers liscence and i don't know of any of the manchester spinners having a liscence other than Elaine, but i fully understand that she may not want to do it due to what happened last time
